High morale of the soldiers injured in the clashes with Houthi rebels on the southern border has been praised by Crown Prince Mohammed bin Naif, deputy premier and minister of interior.

He was speaking on Tuesday during his visit to the Security Forces Hospital to see the injured troops. He ordered the best health care services for them.

Since Sunday, 14 of the 22 admitted have been discharged.

“Our country is proud of them and their comrades in uniforms who are actively defending their homeland,” the crown prince said.

The patients appreciated the spontaneous gesture of the crown prince who also paid a visit to one of the cadets of King Fahd Security College. He was injured while training. Later, he visited two Indian expats who were wounded by the shrapnel of a projectile fired by the Houthis.

The crown prince conveyed to the patients the best wishes and prayers of Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Salman for their speedy recovery.

Later, the crown prince inaugurated a state-of-the-art burns unit at the hospital. Two victims of the Houthi fire were admitted to the center.

Meanwhile, the crown prince presided over a graduation ceremony for 1,145 students in 80 security fields at the King Fahd Security College.

Before leaving the college, he launched the 8th annual iftar meals campaign in the name of martyrs. A caravan of trucks carrying 2,960 baskets of food will benefit poor families in 38 cities and villages all over the Kingdom.

The Interior Ministry’s program has been organized for the benefit of the souls of 148 security men who laid down their lives while fighting criminals and terrorists. Twenty baskets will be distributed for each slain security man and the caravan will travel 8,000 km to distribute the baskets.
